We’ve noted before that the Climate industrial complex is a multi-hundred billion dollar enterprise. It’s a hustle to pick the pockets of taxpayers all over the world.
They’ve succeeded big time on the money front, but even with all this money, their scheme has been a failure in convincing voters that the world is coming to an end. On the one hand, polls do show most people want action on climate change, but when they’re asked how much they’d be willing to pay to achieve that, the answer is shockingly low. An Associated Press poll found 68% of Americans wouldn’t be willing to pay even $10 more a month in higher electric bills if the money were used to combat climate change.
That pattern holds worldwide.
Last year, representative samples of more than 1,000 people were questioned in the US, UK, Spain, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Poland, Singapore, and New Zealand. The results were a bust for the climate change fanatics.
Reducing people’s energy consumption was seen as a priority by only 32% while favoring public transport over cars (25%) and radically changing car models (24%) were all unpopular.
Only 23% felt that reducing plane travel and charging more for products that did not respect environmental norms were important while banning gas-powered vehicles (22%) and reducing meat consumption (18%) and international trade (17%) were seen as even lower priorities.
The study by the Kantar group at the behest of the United Nations dryly noted: “Rather than translating into a greater willingness to change their habits, citizens’ concerns are particularly focused on their negative assessment of governments’ efforts.”
